A leading manufacturer of ATMs has issued a security advisory on the use of so-called "skimming" devices. According to NCR, criminals are obtaining customer card numbers and PINs by using the skimming devices attached to ATMs.

NCR reports that the use of skimming devices has experienced an "alarming" rise in 2015; the devices' technological sophistication has increased, too.

NCR's five-page, fully illustrated security advisory details the types of skimming devices currently in use, and the best practices for identifying compromised machines.
